The Guidepost Galloping Gourmets ride again--on the back of El Cigala. They fared "sumptuously" but you've got to see it for yourself!

There's an excellent exhibit of graffiti artist-turned-mainstream-painter, Jean Michel Basquiat, in downtown Manhattan. The artist died at 28 of an overdose; his works are sobering. It would have been a hard transition from this intense show to our ultimate destination, the Little Spain eatery, (thought-provoking art makes us hungry), but the High Line was nearby. Little Spain has a magnificent selection of Spanish food. The diner prides itself on being purely Spanish but the Latin-American waiter did not know what a "pincho" was and they played Mexican music. Small complaints.  We enjoyed every morsel,  raised our "thimbles" and toasted Basquiat!
